Hello, my friends and welcome.
The tulips are pretty much gone by here
but they still flourish in the studio.
I've had this stamp for a while and love it. When I saw there was a die
to match, I bought it. Then it sat in the NBUS box for a year or so.
I'm glad I finally got it out. It works so well with the stamp!
First I die cut the tulips from a piece of mixed media paper cut
quite a bit larger than the die.
Once I had the cutout, I placed the out cut in my MISTI, laid the
stamp into the out cut, and closed the MISTI to set the stamp.
Then I placed the die cut into the out cut piece and it
Sorry if my explanation isn't very clear. Here's a tutorial on
I stamped on my die cut and used a water brush to move the
ink around. Then stamped again to get the details back.
I have to admit that the stamped and die cut piece got shuffled around
on my work space for a week or two.
When I found this heat embossed script piece, I found a home
for the die cut.
A little sponging with a damp baby wipe over the embossing
made a nice soft background for the pastel tulips.
A couple of stacked layers of the die cut sentiment and sequins to
balance the design and my table was a little neater!
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
